At long last it seems like Jadon Sancho is on the verge of becoming a Manchester United player.
Sport 1 journalist Patrick Berger took to Twitter this evening to provide the latest information he has been given on Jadon Sancho’s transfer saga.
Berger claims Borussia Dortmund ‘will accept the third €85m bid’ from United.
It appears as though it took three bids to finally crack the nut for BVB to agree.
🚨 Update Sancho: #BVB will accept the third €85m bid from Manchester Utd (first was €72m, 2nd €78m). Borussia, that always wanted €90m, come towards #MUFC. There were good talks last days between Watzke & Woodward. Now it’s about details (add ons/payments installments) ⚫️🟡

Hopefully this is the end to what feels like years of negotiations. With the clubs set to agree on a price, the only thing I see stopping the deal from being completed is the player having a medical (unsure if that is possible as long as England compete at Euro 2020).
The word coming from Germany is that ‘good talks’ have been held between United and Dortmund – with the final negotiations to take place over add-ons and payment structure.
Sancho overlooked by England again
Jadon Sancho is on the bench for England’s last-16 clash against Germany (kick-off 5pm).

Fear not though as soon he will be at United – where he will be appreciated and let flourish into a better player.
England’s loss is United’s gain.
